If you shoot at mimes, should you use a silencer?

I know it seems silly, but I want to incorporate dandelions into my wedding (theres a story between my sweetheart and I). I'm doing silk flowers, but I cant find anywhere to buy fake dandelions. Any ideas??

On another but similar note, I don't want to carry a bouquet. What is an alternative for the bride to carry? THANX!!

if you dont want to carry flowers (i assume this means you dont want one of those floral ball thinggies?) you could carry...

a candle, or...a book (religious text, love poems, cheat sheet for your vowes), a pretty box with something in it..like the rings or something for the ceremony, like sand for a sand ceremony.

Ive never heard of silk dandilions. I mean...their free...why buy them?

I think dandelions are a really cute idea! 

I could only find one website that sells silk dandelions.  At least they exist! Here's the link:

Thanx guys. I intend on using real ones too, but for the bouquets and decorations i can make ahead of time, i want some silk ones. Thanx for the link. Their a little expensive though... Is it possible to dry dandelions? I've never tried...

would you consider a pomander for carrying down the aisle?  or a single flower, maybe.

i love the dandelion idea.  I think they are wonderful flowers.  I think the pom pom idea might work really well (and be quite economical).  Another option as oppossed to carrying them is you could silk screen dandelions onton something for the wedding (possibly even your dress).

essentially a flower ball... like so: 



...and you'd either carry it by the ribbon, or slip that ribbon around your wrist.
